    And yet, that's what you're doing, putting words into the mouth of the reporter and calling it "splitting hairs" when I point it out to you.

    Nope, sorry, not buying it as it's been written.
    Being another half-wit reporter he probably didn't know the number to dial for 911.

    The whole thing is sketchy as having a backwards "B" carved on his face but I see we have several trout biting at the hook.

    No, not really. There is a distinct difference between:
    • Reading that this guy was the only reporter assigned, and interpreting that to mean he was the only one allowed to be there
    • Reading that the man's employer says "a member of Biden’s advance team consigned him to a storage closet — and then stood outside the door to make sure he didn’t walk out without permission" and drawing the conclusion that his story is that he was falsely imprisoned
    I certainly haven't read him say anything like "I could've left anytime I felt like it, I just didn't give a hoot."
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Reporter: 911? I'm a reporter at this fancy fundraiser to speak with VP Biden. He's not here and I was told to wait in a storage room. What should I do?
    Operator: Leave if you don't like it.
    Reporter: Oh, ok, but I think I'll wait.

    Years ago I had a reporter interview me about a patient at the hospital I worked at.

    Since she was young and pretty I spent a considerable amount of time explaining the medical procedure completely. I went out of my way to make certain she understood in layman's terms what the procedure was. Well, the paper comes out the next day with my name quoted and all. But she completely botched it.... I watched as she wrote down notes from her interview with me and yet still got it wrong.
    Till this day reporters still don't understand the difference between a cardiac arrest and a heart attack. Just in my little world of knowledge of cardiology I see they get it wrong all the time including the reports that came out on former VP Cheney.
    I can imagine how wrong they are on other specialty areas.

    Still have memories of watching the FOX female reporter waving her hands to get the crowd to make more noise.

    Reporters I put on the same level as car salesmen.

    Not sure she was a reporter and I saw nothing wrong with it anyway.

    Here's one of my favorites as far as reporters go.

    Am surprized reporters don't take a gallon of fake blood to motor vehicle accidents to pour over the car's interior for more sensationalism. It is all about ratings and giving factual reporting is down a few rungs on priority.
